The MISSION:  Assistance League® of Wichita, a chapter of National Assistance League®, is a nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to addressing specific needs of the Wichita community through philanthropic programs.

The VISION: Assistance League aspires to meet the challenging needs of individuals in communities across the nation.

Assistance League of Wichita has been serving the Wichita community since 1984.  We are an all-volunteer, “hands-on” organization of over 150 dedicated members (we have no paid staff). These volunteers cheerfully give over 15,000 hours annually to serve and fund our four philanthropic programs. Tax-deductible donations, honorariums, grants and memorials are gratefully accepted at PO Box 8072, Wichita, Kansas  67208.

Assistance League of Wichita Please take the opportunity to view our video presentation about Assistance League of Wichita. VALUES: Assistance League has a rich history of supporting the vision and talents of our volunteers, all engaged in service that puts caring and commitment into action in their communities. Five Core Values inform and craft leaders' and members' priorities and actions. Commitment: We believe that providing compassionate and caring services to individuals in communities across the nation is the standard and the primary measure of our organization. We believe we exist for the sole purpose of providing philanthropic services to meet the challenges posed by a diverse array of compelling individual and community needs. Leadership: We believe that the full measure of our leaders and members is the sum of the products of their vision, professionalism, ethics, sensitivity and the quality of responsiveness to individual needs. Ethics: We believe that integrity and authenticity in communication and action best demonstrate the most basic, intrinsic values held by member volunteers of this organization. Accountability: We believe that full accountability is the responsibility of the our leaders and members, and is an appropriate expectation of this organization by those who support Assistance League's work and those who receive its services. We believe that this responsibility demands and drives prudent fiscal and physical management, transparent internal and external relationships, viable program assessment and reasoned evaluation of personnel and organizational performance. Respect: We believe in the intrinsic value of those we serve and of those with whom we serve. We believe that we can best demonstrate our respect for this value by providing fair and equitable treatment for our member and community volunteers, the recipients of our services and our donors and patrons. In 2014 we were recognized by Great Non-profits for the surveys and feedback of a members and patrons. In June of 2015 we completed the Gold Level of Participation on the Guidestar Exchange. Donors can now be assured that we meet the highest standards of financial responsibility and impact on our community. great nonprofits badge
